  The Cathedral of Castellon
by MaheshSamtani
 
 

The cathedral of Castellon was initially constructed as a Gothic church towards the end of the 13th century. After a fire burnt down practically the full structure which was badly damaged it was reconstructed in the 15th century and the works ended in the year 1549. It was once again demolished during the Spanish civil war and again reconstructed after 1939 by the architects of the Traver family as a new building with neo gothic forms which were taken from the remains of the previous gothic forms that were saved after so many constructions, reconstructions, fires and demolitions.

This is a building that has survived many chapters of history and well worth visiting.
